Lenovo is fighting off its rivals in the home market with the launch of the new budget smartphone. The latest entry, Lenovo K3 Note, will be available as a low-budget phone in China for CNY 899 (approximately ₹9,000). For the price, the Chinese phone maker is offering incredible specs, great camera and powerful features under the hood to compete against the likes of Xiaomi and Meizu.
Lenovo's latest entry will join the popular budget-worthy Lemon line-up and serves as an enhanced version of Lenovo K3. According to GSM Arena, the K3 Note sports a 5.5-inch Full HD 1,920x1,080 pixel display and powered by a 64-bit octa-core Mediatek MT6752 processor, clocking speeds at 1.7GHz. There's a 1GB RAM on board along with 16GB memory for storage, which can be expanded by up to 32GB via microSD cards.
On the camera side of the phone, the K3 Note packs a 13mp sensor on the rear with dual-tone LED flash and a 5mp front snapper for selfies. There are two SIM-card slots and one of them supports up to 4G LTE bandwidth while the other SIM slot is equipped with GSM function. To power up the entire phone, there's a massive 3,000mAh battery. The smarpthone will run on Google's latest Android 5.0 Lollipop.
With these specs, Lenovo K3 Note is a killer device enough to take out Meizu M1, which retails at CNY 1,099. Lenovo has two variants for its K3 Note. The regular version sells for CNY 899 (approximately ₹9,000) and there's a Teana variant for CNY999 (around ₹10,000). To justify the higher price tag in the Teana model, Lenovo packed special "ceramic piece vibration speaker" to deliver great sound.
Since the model will be sold only in China at the launch, it can perform incredibly well in emerging markets such as India. The Chinese tech giant is yet to announce international availability for the K3 Note.
